North Logan nixes limited-use library cards for non-residents

NORTH LOGAN—The City Council has voted down a resolution that would have provided non-residents with the option of buying a limited-use library card for $50 per year, rather than the non-resident family card for $163 per year.Councilman Al Moser said on Wednesday that it wouldn’t make sense to adopt the $50 limited-use card before seeing what happens with the $163 family card that was just approved on March 16 and will be implemented on July 1. “If we adopted this, no one would buy the $163 card,” Moser said.Moser said the limited-use card would give non-residents a better deal than residents. North Logan residents have a designated tax that goes to the library and they don’t have the option of paying $50 instead, he said. “I think we owe it to our citizens to not do this, not this fast anyway,” he said.The limited-use card would have been a nontransferable card for a single individual, rather than a shared card for a household, and it would have allowed for fewer items to be checked out at a time. Moser said the non-transferability of the card and the limit on items still doesn’t prevent someone from checking out items for other people because there’s no way of knowing.
